Skill Rune Collection Guide

Introduction

Skill Runes are slotted into Skills to add bonus effects. They are necessary for maximizing a build to its full potential. This guide details each rune effect and how to obtain all of them.


Rune Descriptions and Locations

Skill Runes have rarities associated with them, shown by color coding. You may only acquire one of each unique rune, with some rune rarities having two copies you can acquire from two different sources.

Strategy

  1. Unfortunately, the most important Skill Runes like Wealth, Galewind, Quick Recharge, and Bleed are either locked by RNG or locked by token collection. Just do your Chaos Gates, Guardians, and Field Bosses and you will eventually get the rune drops.
  2. For the required Giant's Hearts for the Wealth rune, see the Giant Heart Collectibles Guide.
  3. For the required Omnium Stars for the Wealth rune, see the Omnium Star Collectibles Guide.
  4. Most of these runes also require Adventurer's Seal to exchange for runes. Make sure you do Dispatch in your Stronghold every day to maximize your Adventurer's Seal income. You should prioritize exchanging Adventurer's Seal for Wealth runes as they are the most valuable runes.
  5. The other Skill Runes will be unlocked as you play the game.

Summary

  • Skill Runes are attachments with which you can slot into your skills. They provide bonuses to your skills when equipped.
  • The most important Skill Runes are acquired through RNG Loot from Chaos Gates, Guardians, and Field Bosses, exchanging Adventurer's Seal at Stronghold Merchants, or other forms of collection.
  • The most valuable runes are Wealth, Galewind, Quick Recharge, and Bleed.
